Global Warming is real huh? Tell that to Philly residents who are facing what could be the longest stretch of cold weather in nearly two years.

PHILADELPHIA, PA (Catholic Online) - According to the National Weather Service, the weather in Philadelphia will be both very cold and dry into next week, with high temperatures hanging around the 20s and 30s. Overnight low temperatures could fall to near zero.

Although this is typical, it is a bit colder than last year's longest cold snap. Typically, highs do not dip into the 20s for very long.

Late January and early February are typically the coldest time of the year across the region. The exceptional cold means more danger for vulnerable residents, including the homeless and the elderly.
